"Looking Glass" – Limited Edition from the series Phantasmagoria

This series is about mystery. Not the kind of mystery you solve, but the mystery of that which cannot be understood, uncovered, or known. It is an exploration into the unknown without the typically desired end of revealing secrets.

Due to its inherently surreal nature, I find photography to be the perfect medium for evoking this sense of inscrutability. Photographs both reveal and obscure the reality of the single instance captured therein, thus mimicking our own limited perception of the world.

Since so many of the questions we ask through art, science, philosophy, etc. do not have definitive answers, the simple evocation of mystery becomes our source of meaning. The answer lies in the question itself: in the act of exploration rather than the result.

I believe that the questions we ask about god, death, and the nature of the universe have much more to do with a deep desire to understand the hidden parts of ourselves than the far corners of a vast and distant cosmos. As such, these images are portraits in which the face is obscured by some object. The meaning of the objects and the meaning of that which is obscured is up to the viewer to decide. Or perhaps not to decide.

Like a story with an open ending, these images are meant to evoke and deepen mystery, not to provide explanations. The questions we ask in life are rarely answered to satisfaction. Even the events of our own lives lead, more often than not, to riddles that will never be solved. If we can enjoy the mere process of inquiry and find fulfillment in curiosity itself, we may come as close as ever to the secrets of life.
